She went on to study interpersonal neurobiology, attachment theory, energy psychology, somatic psychology, positive psychology and metaphysics.
Jessica has been interested in meditation since she was 17, when she learned to meditate to help with her own stress. Once the research came out about the benefits of meditation for physical and mental health, she was inspired to pull together a collection of brief, doable practices for her clients.
Jessica is trained in numerous somatic and energetic techniques. When woven into the helping relationship, these powerful methods often lead to lasting shifts. They include: EMDR, Brainspotting, Holographic Memory Resolution, Radiant Heart Healing, EFT, PSYCH-K, and energy work.
